here is my story of how our entire household sent Windows 10 into nirvana.
A few weeks ago we heard about Windows 11 and all the prerequisites it needs. My PC is almost 10 years old but games still run very well on it. My husband's PC is only 3 years old and is not officially supported. I have used Linux (Open Suse and Ubuntu) in the past, but unfortunately the game support was very poor. It's amazing how much progress Linux has made in the last few years.
I was so upset that I formatted my Windows and tried a few Linux distributions. In the end I ended up with Zorin 16 Pro. My husband saw how well games run on Linux and totally liked Zorin so he removed Windows as well. He was a little afraid of the change, but he has me in case of problems. Our last computer with Windows 10 was formatted yesterday and now also gets a new life with Zorin OS. (It's a multimedia center for our living room with retro games).
With all 3 computers we had no problems with the hardware or the installation. Of course I had to install a few things by hand like the dongle for our X-Box controller. But our printer, scanner and many other things just work! That is so great!
I just love Zorin Os and linux! <3
Thanks a lot for listening to my story!
